The end of the bah humbugs


I have been having a hard time this year getting into the holiday spirit. I had pretty much decided that I was going to boycott christmas again this year...just too much emotionally to deal with. My family decided that I had been playing the part of Scrooge long enough and dragged me out tonight...kicking and screaming... to a holiday musical. We went out to dinner first and spent some time walking around after, looking at all the lights. People all around me were happy...out shopping and walking around. I was starting to feel happy myself watching them. We went to the show and I watched all the people around me...having fun...tapping their toes...singing to the old familiar songs that we all know. By the end of the show I was singing right along with them and found myself having a great time.

I went tonight thinking it was going to be another depressing reminder of my husband and instead ended the night feeling happy and a huge sense of relief that I can in fact enjoy some of the things again that I enjoyed before losing my husband.

I think tomorrow I may even go buy myself a little Christmas tree.
